Good questions. Such is the screwup of the massive expansion of the copyright regulations.

You are trying to perserve something that is in copyright, right?

Libraries have some abilities to perserve things, but these were also stymied by some of the regulations.

I would doubt, however, that many organizations will spend the required time and money trying to perserve digital things for a hundred years if there is no access allowed.

Such is the screw of what lobbiest and congress have done.

Sorry to not be more helpful.

I was thinking more of trying to raise fan money or
benefactor contributions to pay the organization for doing
this.

So, no matter what annual or up-front fee I would be willing
to pay www.archive.org, it has no interest in preserving a
work without public access? I suppose that doesn't fit in
with its current "business" model, but I thought that its
major "raison d'etre" was preservation.
